Beyond business
Transcending business for over 50 years now, the Group has been and continues to be involved in meaningful welfare-driven initiatives that distinctly impact the quality of life of the weaker sections of society in India, South-East Asia and Egypt.

In India, the Group's social projects span 2,500 villages. It reaches out to six million people annually through the Aditya Birla Centre for Community Initiatives and Rural Development, spearheaded by Mrs. Rajashree Birla. Its focus is healthcare, education, sustainable livelihood, infrastructure and espousing social causes.

The Group runs 42 schools, which provide quality education to over 45,000 children in India's interiors. Of these, 18,000 children receive free education. An additional 8,000 students receive merit scholarships. Likewise at its 18 hospitals in India, more than 500,000 patients are given extremely subsidised medical care.

The Group transcends the conventional barriers of business and reaches out to the marginalised because of its conviction of bringing in a more equitable society.
